Both knees replaced

I had both knees done the last one a little over a year ago. I am doing very well, no pain, no swelling, full movement and can walk quite well but recently my calves on both my legs get stiff. I also feel off balance. My ortho doctor thinks it is more of a back problem then knees. I told my primary physician that I feel off balance and get dizzy and the tightness I am experiencing. He did alot of test to rule out any other medical issue and all came back well. He says because of the Rheumatoid arthritis and the knees replaced that is something I have to learn to live with. Feels very uncomfortable. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
